Recovery

We all need to recover from something in this life! Look at what Jesus had to say on the subject in Matthew 5:3-10, Jesus said:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. 
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. 
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 
Blessed are the pure in heart,  for they will see God. 
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. 
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Consider these Eight Recovery Principles based on the Beatitudes:
Realize that you’re not God (5:3)
Earnestly believe that God exists (5:4)
Consciously choose (5:5)
Openly examine and confess (5:8)
Voluntarily submit (5:6)
Evaluate all my relationships (5:7)
Reserve daily time with God (5:9)
Yield yourself to be used by God (5:10)
Allow recovery to happen in your life today. Be everything that Jesus desires of us. Amen?
